A Breed Apart




BeowulfYou won’t sleep, but please remember to breathe. ~Candace Calvert, author of Trauma Plan

A handler and her dog.

A Green Beret Willing to risk everything.

A mission that could kill them all!

Former Navy handler Timbrel Hogan has more attitude than her Explosives Detection Dog, Beowulf. Green Beret Tony “Candyman” VanAllen likes a challenge and convincing the hard-hitting handler they belong together might just get him killed.

“I have read all of Ms Kendig’s books & this is one of her best….read it – you won’t be disappointed!” ~Amazon reviewer, Carolynne H.

A Former Green Beret. His War dog.On the greatest mission of their lives.And probably their last.

A year ago in Afghanistan, Green Beret Heath Daniel’s career was destroyed. Along with his faith. Now he and his military war dog, Trinity train other dogs and their handlers through the A Breed Apart organization. The job works. But his passion is to be back in the field. The medical discharge says it can’t happen due to the traumatic brain injury that forced Heath to the sidelines.

Until. . .

Military intelligence officer Darci Kintz is captured and the geological survey team she’s covertly embedded with is slaughtered while secretly tracking the Taliban. It’s clear only one dog can handle the extreme conditions to save her. Trinity. Only one man can handle Trinity. And time is running out on the greatest—and most dangerous—mission of their lives.

This Time, Even the War Dog Is Scared

Her brother is missing. And her only chance of finding him lies with a combat dog that has lost his edge. All Air Force veteran Aspen Courtland wants is her brother back. The US Marine Corps says he’s dead, but Aspen won’t believe it till she sees his body. Her only hope is her brother’s tracking dog, Talon, but a brutal attack has left the dog afraid of his own shadow.

The truth is something Military Intelligence Operative Dane Markoski has never faced. But now it’s the only thing that can save him—along with Talon’s help. But working with Talon means teaming up with Aspen as well, and Dane swore he’d never work with a woman. Eventually they join forces to battle the elements and extremists. But if Talon can’t rise up to his former glory for one last mission, the only outcome for all three will be game over.
